ABOUT THE WINE
In 2007 Marceau (Marc) Cellier decided to retire and hand over his vineyards to his three children (Ludovic, Julien and Benoit) and Nathalie (Ludovic's wife). They are the 8th generation of the Cellier family to work the vine and to make top-class Rhone wines. Domaine les 3 Cellier was thus born on August 1st, 2007, with the breakup of Domaine Saint Benoit. The Cellier family retained 13.4 hectares of vines, all within the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

TASTING NOTES
45% lees ageing in new French oak; production is only 250 cases per vintage. Medium-bodied, with red fruit, soft texture and a forward, approachable character accentuated by herb-touched complexity. A real charmer.

FOOD PAIRING
It is excellent with beef-dishes, but can also pair beautifully with lighter meats like pork.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Named in honour of their father, this is a special expression of the Cellier family vineyards, a wine which gives immense pleasure.
